The Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

The Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Overview

Here are the absolute rarest pickaxes in all of Fortnite

There’s probably nothing in Fortnite quite as satisfying as killing an opponent with a pickaxe. Especially if they’re trying to fight back with actual weapons. More than anything, the pickaxe is just a great item to flex with, so get yourself a nice one.

Raider's Revenge

Let’s start with the classic Raider’s revenge. 

Raider's Revenge

Raider’s Revenge tops the list of the rarest Fortnite pickaxes because it was released in Fortnite Season 1’s Season Shop along with Renegade Raider. The Fortnite Season Shop was similar to the Fortnite Battle Pass in earlier seasons. But only the real vets will remember it still

Tooth Pick

Next up, this isn’t as OG as the raider’s revenge, but it’s still hugely sought after; it’s the Toothpick.

Tooth Pick

The Tooth Pick is a rare skin for pickaxes that has been absent from the Fortnite Item Shop for over 1000 days now. And the absence alone makes this a sought after item. When the Tooth Pick was available in the Fortnite Item Shop, Epic Games priced the Tooth Pick at 800 V Bucks. So weirdly, it wasn’t even that expensive. 

Star Wand

This next one is well-known, and not just because it's been absent from the shop for so long. This is the star wand, and it was basically the unofficial lightsaber from way back before the official Star Wars collab

At release the Star Wand had a rare glitch where the pickaxe dealt 56 damage to opponents, rather than the standard 20. But that was patched out fairly soon, now it’s just a relic of the pre-official crossover days. 

Armature

This next one is a little weirder, it’s rare because it was so unpopular. Well, kinda.

Armature

The Armature pickaxe has not been back in the Fortnite Item Shop for over 3 years! So because the Armature has gone through such an extreme dry spell from the Fortnite Item Shop, it’s ironically because super valuable as one of the rarest skins for Fortnite pickaxes.

Candy Axe

Okay, let’s get back to the pickaxes that you might one day actually be able to buy. Here we have the Candy axe. 

Candy Axe

Pretty awesome right? But the Candy Axe is a holiday themed harvesting tool. And so, it only shows up in the Fortnite Item Shop around the holiday season. Meaning, many Fortnite players are unable to get their hand on Candy Axe. Hence, it's so rare.

Pulse Axe

This next one isn’t quite as playful, but is just as rare. The Pulse Axe earned its rarity as a Fortnite harvesting tool by being a part of the very early, Season 2 Battle Pass.

Since the Pulse Axe was part of an OG season’s battle pass, players are no longer able to add Pulse Axe to their Fortnite Locker. In fact, the Pulse axe was the very first Fortnite harvesting tool to be a part of the Fortnite Battle Pass.

Pot O'Gold

Next up, another seasonal pickaxe. The Pot O’ Gold pickaxe was last seen on St. Patrick’s Day 2020 in the Fortnite Item Shop for 1200 V Bucks.

However, it has been absent from subsequent Patrick's Day sales, which leads us to think this might really have been a one-off. And hence, this is such a rare pickaxe. Although, personally, I think it's a bit lame based on design. 

AC/DC

Unlike this next one. This is the AC/DC Epic rarity pickaxe, and it was added to Fortnite in Season 2. But despite the name, the AC/DC pickaxe has nothing to do with the band AC/DC. The AC/DC pickaxe is a voltage themed pickaxe in Fortnite. 

AC/DC

Players needed to reach Tier 63 of the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass to acquire this thing. And what makes it so rare is simple that the AC/DC is from a very early Battle Pass, and players were required to reach a high tier to unlock it. So only long-term sweats have this puppy now.

FNCS Axe Of Champions

Okay, but let’s get to the absolute king of rarity. This is the FNCS Axe of Champions, which is undoubtedly the rarest pickaxe in Fortnite's history. To obtain the Axe of Champions, players must win the FNCS Championship. But, when a new team wins the FNCS Championship, the previous winners lose their pickaxe.

FNCS Axe Of Champions

Since this pickaxe gets rotated through FNCS Champions, only 21 players can have it in their locker at a time. Three players from the seven Epic Games competition regions. Basically, If you see someone coming at you with the FNCS Axe of Champions now, you’ll know they are a top-tier player, and you need to run.

Okay, that was your rundown of the rarest pickaxes in all of Fortnite. If you managed to snag one of the rarest pickaxes in Fortnite, I must admit I’m a little jealous. These pickaxes are on the short list for all Fortnite players’ dream cosmetic items. So yeah, good luck finding them.
